    Descriptive info: No Bones About It.. 03/04/2013.. 0 Comments.. Effigia Okeeffeae.. Having a dinosaur share your name is usually an honor reserved for the discoverer of the bones.. Not so with Georgia O Keeffe, who had dino.. Effigia okeeffeae.. (O Keeffe s Ghost) named after her in 2006.. Effigia, as the animal is called for short, is an archosaur from the Late Triassic period (about 230-300 million years ago).. A relatively small dinosaur, Effigia stood about 3 feet high, averaged 10 feet long, and weighed 150-200 pounds.. A relative of modern day crocodiles, it had a beak like a turtle or bird, making its diet difficult to determine.. Like O Keeffe, Effigia was a creature ahead of its time it shared characteristics with (unrelated) dinosaurs that roamed over 80million years later, during the Cretaceous Period.. Effigia was originally unearthed by Edwin H.. Colbert during O Keeffe s lifetime, in 1947-1948.. Colbert unknowingly dug up the bones while excavating another dinosaur in the Ghost Ranch quarry.. The bones remained hidden in boxes at the American Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.. C.. until 2006, when Sterling Nesbitt opened them and discovered a partial skeleton.. With the help of curator Mark Norell, he was able to retrieve more of the skeleton.. The little dinosaur is featured in the video Dinosaurs Alive! , and can be seen running from a  ...   Kane.. Add Comment.. A Different Kind Of Love Story.. 03/01/2013.. 1 Comment.. Georgia O'Keeffe, Pedernal, 1941.. Oil on canvas, 19 x 30 1/4 in.. Gift of The Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation.. The tempestuous love story of artists Georgia O Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz is relatively well known, made famous by books such as My Faraway One, Selected Letters of Georgia O Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz: Volume I 1915-1933 (edited by Sarah Greenough).. The struggles and triumphs of the couple have captivated the attention of audiences from their contemporaries to modern scholars and casual observers alike.. However, it could be argued that O Keeffe s greatest love was her passion for New Mexico, especially Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, and the surrounding landscape.. The passion and precision with which she painted her desert surroundings are matched by her poetic descriptions to Charles Wickham Moore, in letters kept as part of the Georgia O Keeffe Museum collections.. In the letters, appropriately written shortly before Valentine s Day, she describes her love of life in the Southwest.. In 1960, she writes.. I am fine and to my eye the world here is wonderful.. Ten years later, despite a frustrating week-long stay in the hospital after a trip to Mexico City, she writes.. Today looks like one of our perfect winter days clear warm sun cold wind.. Archives..

  • Title: Current Exhibition - Georgia O'Keeffe Museum
    Descriptive info: Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George.. 4 October 2013 26 January 2014.. The Hyde Collection, in association with the Georgia O Keeffe Museum, is organizing a first of its kind exhibition that will closely examine the extraordinary body of work created by O Keeffe of and at Lake George.. The exhibition will explore the full range of work by the artist from magnified botanical compositions of the flowers and vegetables that O Keeffe grew in her garden, to a group of remarkable still lifes of the apples and pears that she picked on the property.. O Keeffe became fascinated with the variety of trees cedars, maples, poplars, and birches that grew in abundance at Lake George, and they were the subject of at least twenty five compositions.. Telescopic views of a single leaf or pairs of overlapping leaves were another recurring motif during O Keeffe s Lake George years, resulting in some twenty nine canvases.. Architectural subjects, including paintings of the weathered barns and buildings on the Stieglitz property that blend the descriptive and the abstract, emerged as a theme, as did a number of panoramic landscape paintings and bold, color filled abstractions that often visually related to the subjects she was working on at the time.. All of these themes will be explored through a selection of approximately fifty five works from public and private collections.. Like many artists of her generation and earlier ones as well, O  ...   spirit of place that was essential to O Keeffe s modern approach to the natural world.. In 1923, Georgia O Keeffe enthusiastically wrote to her friend Sherwood Anderson, I wish you could see the place here there is something so perfect about the mountains and the lake and the trees Sometimes I want to tear it all to pieces it seems so perfect but it is really lovely And when the household is in good running order and I feel free to work it is very nice..

  • Title: Upcoming Exhibitions - Georgia O'Keeffe Museum
    Descriptive info: Georgia O Keeffe and Ansel Adams: The Hawaii Pictures.. February 7 - September 14, 2014.. This exhibition is the first to feature the artwork created in Hawaii by.. Georgia.. O Keeffe and Ansel Adams.. These two friends and American modernists are famously associated with the extraordinary places that inspired them; though both visited Hawaii at the height of their powers, the work they created there has received little attention.. reveals how profoundly both artists were moved by their personal experiences in Hawaii.. Further, the photographs and paintings included in the exhibition express the islands unique sense of place, at the same time they reveal the complex continuities with the whole of O Keeffe and Adams s respective oeuvres.. The exhibition will include fourteen paintings by O Keeffe created during a 1939 trip to Honolulu and neighbor islands to create illustrations for print advertisements for the Hawaiian Pineapple Company (now the Dole Company).. During her two month stay in Hawaii, she traversed Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii (The Big Island), visiting beaches, rainforests, and pineapple plantations, and painting the dramatic coastlines, volcanic terrain, traditional tools, and exotic flora.. She painted dramatic landscapes of coastlines and waterfalls; but most extensively the island flowers: white bird of paradise, heliconia, crab s claw ginger, and bella donna.. These artworks reveal O Keeffe s deeply personal response to the inescapable natural beauty of the islands.. The tropical blossoms will resonant with viewers who admire her large-scale flower paintings, but the seascapes and verdant valleys are an unusual subject for the artist better known for her desert landscapes.. Yet, these disciplined compositions express her enduring fascination with the formal vocabulary of abstraction.. The exhibition will also include Ansel Adams s photographs of Hawaii, likewise undertaken on commission, first in 1948 as part of a series on national parks for the Department of the Interior and in 1957 for a commemorative publication for Bishop National Bank of Hawaii (now First Hawaiian Bank).. These extraordinary and often idiosyncratic works reveal how Adams, like O Keeffe, sought a personal experience, beyond the prevailing stereotypes of Hawaii, to picture his individual response to the island s natural beauty.. Building upon the exhibition.. Georgia O Keeffe and Ansel Adams: Natural Affinities.. , on view at the Georgia O Keeffe Museum in 2008, this body of work reveals how Adams and O Keeffe sought to unmask what lay beyond the beaches of Waikiki, to convey their profound and intimate connection to the land.. The exhibition was organized by Theresa Papanikolas, Curator of European and American art at the Honolulu Museum, where it will open on July  ...   to the original, Chabot reimagined new uses for the existing rooms.. She mapped a plan for domestic spaces, a garden with fruit trees, the largest studio the artist ever had, and a plan to enlarge the windows toward the view of cottonwood trees to the north and the mesa east of the house.. Surrounded by a wall, the house looked inward to a patio, and did not offer the dramatic vistas of O Keeffe s first home at the Ghost Ranch.. The only possibility for gaining a view of the surrounding landscape was beyond the walls of the compound.. Chabot imagined a studio in a separate building at the edge of the mesa that had previously functioned as a stable and buggy house.. It sheltered the largest interior space on the property and offered the only possibility for an extended view.. Further, Chabot suggested opening the wall in O Keeffe s studio with a picture window, which allowed an endless view toward the Chama River Valley and the Jemez Mountains beyond.. During the 1950s the overlook from her studio inspired O Keeffe to create more than two dozen paintings of the cottonwood trees that grew along the river below.. Ten of those paintings are included in this exhibition.. Though the studio window was an extravagant luxury in rural New Mexico, Chabot asked O Keeffe if she would also like her corner bedroom to be mostly glass.. With O Keeffe s consent, Chabot installed a modern picture window in the studio along with an expanse of glass at the corner of the adjoining bedroom.. The view from the artist s bed room window also stirred her imagination.. In 1952, O Keeffe began to visualize the winding road that cut through the landscape in a series of ever-more simplified compositions.. Paintings and drawings of the mesa and road are also part of the exhibition.. The paintings that comprise this exhibition are emblematic of O Keeffe s endless fascination with the color and form of her surroundings in northern New Mexico; a landscape that inspired her art and the reconstruction of her home and studio in Abiquiu.. During the course of 2014, the gallery installations will change to reveal different views of the property, including images of her famous patio and the black door..
